SF Site Review

Paul Kincaid on One for Sorrow:

Whether you read the ghost story as a metaphor for Adam’s psychological travails, or the upheavals in Adam’s family as a grim mirror for the haunting, this is a superbly structured, beautifully written coming of age story. It is, in its way, as powerful and affecting a debut as The Catcher in the Rye was half a century before.

That’s the end of the review (the part where I thought, awesome!!) but there’s a really amazingly detailed summary and explication of the book’s plot that precedes this.
